This beautiful cushion cut diamond ring has a 1.50-carat square cushion brilliant diamond set in a custom platinum Richard Landi engagement ring. The diamond ring features eighteen pave round diamonds with 0.25 total carat weight. There are five diamonds on each side of the shank and four diamonds on each side of the eight-prong crown-style basket head. The diamond ring has exquisite filigree design on the shank and basket while the bottom of the shank is hand carved.
The cushion cut diamond measures 8.23 x 6.50 x 3.97 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.27. Cushion cut diamonds come in various shapes from those almost square (length to width ratio 1.05 or less) to very rectangular (ratio 1.30 or more) to everything in between. The classic pillow shape tends to have ratios in the 1.10 – 1.20 range. This cushion cut diamond has a 61.1% depth percentage and a 64% table percentage. For cushion-cut diamonds, we recommend a depth of 59-69% and table of 50-65% with smaller percentages generally producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The cushion cut diamond shape was one of the most popular cuts of diamonds ever. From approximately 1830 to the turn of the century, the cushion cut was simply how diamonds were cut. The cushion cut diamond is a generic name for the Old Mine Cut, developed before the turn of the century. The older cushion shape diamonds return light in blocky patterns while the modern cut stones return light in a needlelike pattern, usually with smaller culets. The sparkle, brilliance, and beauty of the cushion cut diamond has more to do with the skill of the cutter fashioning the facets than it does with the choice of one of three basic facet patterns. In the past ten years, there has been resurgence in the popularity of the cushion cut diamond shape. Interestingly, cushion shape diamonds are one of the most popular shapes for fancy colored diamonds because the shape displays the color evenly throughout the stone.
